Innovation exhibits at the booth

We are presenting two different crash management systems in order to demonstrate our latest light weighting innovations and our mature experience in the design and production of aluminum parts.


The future is electric: Our latest project is the development of a lightweight battery housing made of steel and aluminum for a full electric car. Additional features of this hybrid concept are integrated crash performance, underbody protection and cooling system.  


The front-end structure for the BMW 7 series presents a central contribution to lightweight construction. KIRCHHOFF Automotive actively participated also in the design and development as well as early prototype phase. The result is a complete aluminum solution in profile and monocoque construction with optimal material combination and best possible performance.
